Memory Foam Air Bed Mattresses
Manufacturers, such as INTEX
and Smart Air Beds
, have added a layer of memory foam to some styles of beds, which adds two benefits:
1) Comfort - Since memory foam is a solid piece of material not only does it provide extra stability to the bed, but it also provides a flatter sleeping surface. Most air beds either have long beams of air or pockets of air in them, which, though they provide stability, also can leave you feeling like you have a "coil" in your back. A layer of memory foam puts a piece of material between you and your bed, offering a smooth, comfortable sleeping surface.
2) Warmth - When sleeping on air beds, the content of the bed (air) is only as warm as its surroundings. Gradually, throughout the night, the temperature of the air within the bed will decrease, which in some instances, can leave the sleeper feeling cold. A nice layer of memory foam adds yet another layer of material between you and the air to provide a more comfortable sleeping temperature.
